I enjoy finding the graves of famous folks – this past December when my daughter was on winter break we took a rode trip to Palm Springs
We had a fun day that included a stop at the cemetery that had not only Frank Sinatra but also Sonny Bono, William Powell, Betty Hutton, Busby Berkley and two Gabors plus others
Here is Sinatra’s simple marker – he is buried next to his folks, his in-laws and his best friend Jilly Rizzo
I’m not one for graveside visits but if you gotta go I guess Frank would be the one of the ones to see. Especially if he’s in the neighborhood of two Gabors!
Alle – you need to allow me to give you a cemetry tour – we can go to marilyns grave – that cemetry is like ap rk – we can have a picnic lunch – and trust me when i say we wont be the only ones there gawking
I’ve actually seen Marilyn’s grave because was right near a movie theater I used to go to. I know cemetery tours are a very hip thing to do but I’m happier in a car shooting cheesy locations around town. Picnic lunch rain check.
Sad to think that the first African American female Oscar Winner, didn’t get a grave marker til 1999. I did a lot of cemetery hopping when I was in LA, it can be really, really fascinating. Great post!
